weta : the hobbit


weta workshop recently commissioned me to create a poster for “the hobbit” trilogy. they allowed me a great deal of creative freedom, and after a few quick takes, i chose to focus on the incredible creature designs that the series offers, punctuated by the magnificent smaug.

the prints debuted at weta‘s booth at calgary expo this weekend. they will eventually be available through their online shop and i’ll have artist proofs in the near future as well.

dark hall mansion : a boy named charlie brown


dark hall mansion have once again asked me to visit charles schulz’ world, this time illustrating a print for the 1969 animated musical, “a boy named charlie brown”.

this is the first full-length peanuts feature film i’ve worked with. the longer run time (as opposed to the half-hour holiday specials that i created posters for in the past) means there are loads of visuals and scenes to choose from. i’m especially proud of the story-strip at the bottom that chronicles chuck’s rise and (inevitable) fall.

it’s always great to hang with the peanuts gang.

all editions of the print will drop on thursday, march 12. full info follows.

global knowledge : be a force

as i begin to work on my 2015 collaboration with global knowledge, i’m reminded that i never posted the campaign that we created in 2014.

so, here it is.

my art director gave me ’70s sci-fi as a theme and let me run wild with it.

when global knowledge exhibits at an industry show (such as cisco live) where they are interacting with students or potential students, they leverage the poster art and accompanying t-shirt design. given that their existing brand name and image is very strong in this space, they feel comfortable presenting themselves in a fun or edgy way.

they also use the art in their training centers, again a direct interaction with students, presenting them in a topical or cool way for a geeky/comic book/video game/sci-fi crowd. for a company that still values its strong corporate image, being able to interact with students in this manner has proven to bridge the gap between training they have to take and training they want to take.
